Burgess Hill Team Silver Medalists 2018!
After 12 fixtures, Cottesmore Golf Academy rose to the top with our very own Burgess Hill Golf Centre Juniors finishing a commendable 2nd place!
The GolfSixes Trophy
Feedback from last year’s GolfSixes League pilot project which featured six regional leagues was highly positive. Some 80% of kids wanted to play more golf after GolfSixes and 61% said they “loved golf”. Some 90% of events featured supportive Mums and Dads, including volunteer roles. There was a 65% increase in affiliated membership (73 members at the start, 121 at the end).
Burgess Hill Golf Centre Team Manager Bruce Whalley was pleased with the Burgess Hill’s Team performance..
” This interclub competition has proved to be a real hit amongst all the juniors that took part. It was great to watch the fixtures to see the juniors focusing on their game and exercising sportsmanship towards fellow players. Also GolfSixes is a fantastic opportunity for parents to watch and support their children as they played. I have no doubt GolfSixes will include more clubs and teams next year “
